Staff Report • Dec 17, 2012 at 10:19 AM

A broken taillight led Johnson City police to arrest a man on numerous drug charges Sunday.

Danial R. Kiko, 28, general delivery, Johnson City, was arrested after police stopped a vehicle with a broken taillight at the intersection of N. State of Franklin Road and Knob Creek Road.

Police said after Kiko lied about his identity, he was taken into custody and searched. Police found two glass pipes and a syringe, 48 pseudoephedrine pills and 3 grams of morphine.

In the vehicle, police also found items commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

As Kiko was booked into the Washington County Detention Center, he was searched again, and additional narcotics and paraphernalia were found hidden in his pants, police said.

Charged with criminal impersonation, simple possession of schedule II drugs, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and introduction of contraband into a penal facility, Kiko was held in the Detention Center on $22,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance today.
